The area comprises the Gateway to Amelia shopping center, which includes retail and office space, plus Marsh Cove and Somerset residential units. The annexation still must go before city commissioners before it becomes o fficial. PAB members also approved two zoning changes for the area to be annexed. A General Commercial Land Use z one was approved for the parcel measuring 17.46 acres w est of Amelia Island Parkway including Gateway to A melia. A zoning change to High Density Residential was approved for the 6.88-acre parcel east of the parkway. The area is contiguous to an undeveloped parcel along Amelia Island Parkway that is bisected by Hirth Road, which was annexed into the city in January. A subdivision including 35 houses is planned there. PAB member Judith Lane said the annexation of the a rea was encouraging, as it would bring new citizens and v igor into the city . She noted, however, that the city w ould have to plan for the future and evaluate how the recent annexations would affect the city. Its forcing the city to do some forward thinking, Lane said. City Attorney Tammi Bach said city officials had discussed putting another fire station at the airport, as one example of the citys potential expansion of services for n ew city residents in the area. S enior Planner Kelly Gibson said all residents and b usiness owners in the area to be annexed had been notified by mail, and that the properties to be annexed had been properly posted. But Ron Flick, a developer and condo owner at Gateway to Amelia, said he was not in favor of the annexation.

The annual surcharge revenue to the city is about $164,000 for those residential units, Clifford said. The c ity also has 131 commercial accounts using city water utilit ies outside city limits, which bring in annual surcharge revenues of $73,000. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the entire state of Florida uses the Floridan Aquifer for its water supply, and Fernandina Beach was one of the first cities to obtain water from the aquifer int he early 1900s.

Test to replace FCAT in Florida TALLAHASSEE Florida Department of Education Commissioner Pam Stewart announced Monday a new test has been selected to replace the FCAT 2.0 exams beginning w ith the 2014-15 school year. The new assessment will measure each childs progress and achievement on the Florida Standards, which were developed with an unprecedented amount of public input, said Stewart in a press release. This assessment supports our n ew standards, which emphasize flexibility for teachers to make their own decisions in classrooms while preparing our students to analyze and think. The selection of our new assessment tool is a critical step forward. Florida students will be assessed on their knowledge of the Florida Standards, which will prepare them for success in college, careers and in life, said State Board of Education Chairman Gary C hartrand. In August 2013, Gov. Rick Scott convened the states top education leaders and bipartisan stakeholders to discuss the sustainability and transparency of the states system in a threeday accountability summit. Scott subsequently issued E xecutive Order 13-276, which initiated Floridas departure from the national PARCC consortium as its fiscal agent, to ensure that the state would be able to procure a test specifically designed for Floridas needs without federal intervention. Scott also set out eight goals for the new assessment to ensure the best outcome for Florida students. Among those eight objectives were an e mphasis on prompt reports of results, no significant change in testing time for students, no significant increase in costs of the assessments and an assurance that testing dates be as close as possible to the end of the school year to maximize learning opportunities. S cott also requested additional public comments about the standards, which resulted in public hearings around the state and thousands of comments from Floridians. In February, the State Board of Education approved changes to the standards that reflected the input. The new Florida Standards for mathematics and English language arts stress a broader approach for student learning, including an i ncreased emphasis on analytical thinking. With the new and more rigorous standards, a new assessment was needed to measure student progress. After receiving proposals and an evaluation, a negotiation team unanimously recommended the not-for-profit Ame rican Institutes for Research to Stewart, who announced her selection of AIR Monday.

As Jacksonville wrestles with a giant shortfall within its city pension funds, surrounding areas like Nassau County could feel the fallout in the form of electric shockwaves. This is because officials a re now pressuring cityowned Jacksonville Electric A uthority to increase its contributions toward these pension funds. And, if so, JEA might raise water and sewer rates to compens ate for it. This w ould directly impact thousands of Nassau County residents who use JEAw ater or sewer services. So this is like sticking t heir wet fingers in an electric o utlet. N assau County officials h ave made a preemptive move, however. Local officials are sending a letter to Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown and the JEA board, protesting any increases in utility rates that may emerge from the pension negotiations. Granted, talk of JEA rate increases is speculative right now. But if you follow the money, the trail could likely head that way toward higher rates. Brown has tried to be creative in pushing his austerity p rogram. He has inherited a p roblematic shortfall in the c itys pensions (for instance, the police and fire pension fund has a $1.7 billion deficit) that will get worse unless something is done right away. In the latest efforts, officials have turned to JEA. B rown also is touting the f inancial advantages of mov i ng JEA employees out of the city pension fund altogether (and into a separate fund they would administer). As with most entities, JEA has other options (trimming expenses, reducing staff, etc.) to meet the additional pensiond emands fr om the city witho ut raising rates. In fact, JEA quickly raised electric rates during the spike in oil prices around 2008, but has been slow to respond to a subsequent decline in petroleum prices. Within Nassau County, JEA provides 5,914 homes and businesses with water service, a nd 4,680 with sewer service ( some homes and businesses h ave both services). So rate increases would impact many local residents. It seems that residential and business costs steadily go higher, and rarely go lower. Obviously, this is hardly s hocking to local residents a t least not compar ed to a poss ible increase in their utility rates.

That s pending supported 32 jobs in Camden, Charlton and Glynn Counties in southernG eorgia and Nassau County in Florida. Cumberland Island National Seashore is t he largest Georgia barrier island and we understand the important impact we have both economically and in our role supporting our gateway communities said Acting Superintendent Gary Ingram. National park tourism is a sign ificant driver in the national economy returning $10 for every $1 invested in the NationalP ark Service. We appreciate the partnership and support of our local neighbors and are glad t o be able to give back by helping to sustain our local schools, businesses and communities. Nationally, the peer-reviewed visitor spending analysis was conducted by U.S. Geological Survey economists Catherine Cullinane Thomas and Christopher Huber and Lynne Koontz for the National Park Service. The report shows $ 14.7 billion of direct spending by 283 million park visitors in communities within 60 miles of a national park. This spending supported 243,000 jobs nationally, with 201,000 jobs found in these gateway communities, and had a cumulative benefit to the U.S. economy of $26.75 bill ion. According to the report most visitor spendi ng supports jobs in restaurants, grocery and convenience stores (39 percent), hotels, motels a nd B&Bs (27 percent) and other amusement and recreation (20 percent). To download the report visit www.nature.nps.gov/socialscience/economics.cfm. The report includes information for v isitor spending at individual parks and by state. Cumberland Island is the largest barrier i sland off the coast of Georgia, encompassing more than 36,000 acres of maritime forests, salt m arsh and beaches. The island is also home to over 9,800 acres of Congressionally-designated Wilderness. The islands natural and cultural resources provide a rich and diverse habitat for wildlife and offer a glimpse into the long history of coastal Georgia. The Seashore is accessible by foot-only, passenger ferry from St. M arys, Ga., though bidding later this year could result in a ferry from Fernandina to the island.

City group looks at development A NGELA DAUGHTRY News-Leader A working group that will f ocus on economic development and future land use in the city of Fernandina Beach met for the first time March 11. The group is made up of Community Development Director Adrienne Burke, Senior Planner Kelly Gibson, City Planner Scott Schultz, local e ngineer Nick Gillette, local architect Jose Miranda, Nassau County Economic Development Board President Steve Rieck and resident Robin L entz. The groups goal is to review the commercial corridors of the city with regards to future land use and economic development, and create information that will eventually become updates in the citys Land Development Code. A nother goal is to discuss this data throughout 2014 at monthly meetings so community development staff can draft the updates to the LDC in 2015. The entire project is expected to take about two years, but m ay continue beyond that, according to a written summary by Burke. The commercial areas the group will focus on are Sadler Road, South Eighth Street, Main Beach and South 14th Street. Members decided at the first meeting that they w ould focus first on evaluating South Eighth Streets issues and identifying its stakeholders. City staff members brought to the meeting examples of Florida cities that have experienced the kind of changes F ernandina Beach could benefit from. Some city development issues discussed at the meeting were possible re-evaluation of zoning, mixed-use development, new design guidelines, pedestrian walkways into town, streamlining development p rocesses and community involvement. Meetings are open to the public. The groups next meeting is April 6 at 3:30 p.m. at City Hall, 204 Ash St. email@example.com 1 petition successful in property tax appeal T he countys Value Adjustment Board (VAB) recently wrapped up hearings and has determined that the Property Appraisers Office was fair in t heir 2013 assessments. A ppr oximately 145 petitions w ere filed with the Value A djustment Board in 2013, c ompared to the 425 petitions filed the year before Property Appraiser Mike Hickoxs term. The majority of the petitions were resolved prior to going toV AB, said Hickox. Only 16 p etitions actually went before t he special magistrate without s pending any additional money on attorney fees. For the 2013 V AB hearings, the Property Appraisers Office didnt spend any money on legal fees or outside appraisal or consulting ser vices. I f property owners do not a gree with their classification, exemption or property value, they have the right to file a petition with the Value Adjustment Board within 25 days from the t ime the notice of proposed p r operty taxes were mailed. T he next step is the exchanging o f evidence and hearings with t he special magistrate, who then makes a recommendation to the Nassau County Value Adjustment Board Of the 16 petitions that were brought to a hearing, only one was granted. Chief DeputyK evin Lilly explained that there w as an organization that incorr ectly applied for an educational exemption.

Week two of the 2014 legislative session began Monday morning with the usual three-hour and twominute drive to Tallahassee. T he first meeting of the week was Education Appropriations where a presentation was given regarding the broadband capability at our public schools. Later that afternoon I stood before the Criminal Justice Committee to present H B 1105 dealing with Sexual Offenders and Sexual Predators Absconders. FDLE estimates that there are 737 sexual predators and sexual offenders who have absconded from supervision. This means that they have made themselves unavailable for s upervision and all efforts to locate the offender have been exhausted. It is interesting to note that the Department of Corrections estimates that there are 379 individuals who are required to register but have absconded. This number does not include the sexual o ffenders and sexual predators that have absconded from supervision but were not required to register. (These individuals committed their crimes before the registry was created.) Many have c oncerns that the current system is passive and lacks a focused effort on arresting these a bsconders. HB 1105 creates a strike force within the Office of the Attorney General to track down and arrest these sexual offender and sexual predator absconders. It will coordinate efforts between the Department of C orrections, FDLE and local law enforcement agencies. They will also create a statewide list of known absconders and distribute to local law enforcement agencies. While the Department of Corrections estimates that there are approximately 2 2,000 absconders covering all crimes and offenses, this strike force will focus solely on sexual offenders and sexual predators. The bill passed unanimously and will be heard next in Judicial Appropriations. Although I had no committee meetings on Tuesday, the d ay was anything but quiet. Filled with meetings and bill preparation, the hours flew by; and it was 3 p.m. and time for session. It was second reading, not only for my member bill HB 173, dealing with Juvenile Justice, but also several sexual predator bills. S B 526 significantly increases the punishment of sex offenders. Minimum sentences and maximum penalties are both increased for several sexual battery and lewd offenses and incentive gain-time eligibility (for good behavior) is eliminated. This c reates predictability for the victim on when an offender will be released from prison. SB 528 makes several changes to the information that a sexual offender or sexual predator must report to FDLE. A registrant must now report the vehicles a regist rant owns and vehicles owned by a person with whom a registrant lives. This information will assist law enforcement personnel in monitoring the activities of sexual predators and sexual offenders. The purpose of SB 524 is to facilitate the accurate assessment of sex offenders f or civil commitment as sexua lly violent predators. Under t he bill, an offender will be recommended for civil commitment if two members of the multi-disciplinary team determine that the offender is, by definition, a sexually violent predator. Current law i s silent on the number of m ulti-disciplinary team memb ers required to designate a sexual offender as a sexually violent predator. SB 522 will require more individuals, including those in local detention facilities, who have a current or prior conviction for a sexually violent o ffense may be assessed for c ivil commitment as a sexuall y violent predator. The bill also requires multi-disciplinar y teams to treat a sexual offender whose offense was an attempt, criminal solicitation or conspiracy to commita sexually violent offense, the s ame as an offender who c ompleted the sexually viol ent offense. Wednesday afternoon members returned to the House floor for third reading. This time when the bills were presented, the members cast their vote. All of these bills passed the House with a b ipartisan, unanimous vote. I w as also pleased when my bill d ealing with Juvenile Justice Education Programs (HB 173) passed unanimously Earlier that day I presented HB 7117 dealing with School Accountability to the Education Committee. The b ill simplifies the school g rades calculations for elem entary, middle and high schools by eliminating extraneous point categories and focusing on student performance, graduation and eligibility for college credit. Cur rently if a school scores within a point range, but fails t o make adequate progress in c er tain categories, their grade w ould fall by one letter (fr o m B to C, for example.). This would be like a student get ting a 90 percent on a test, but because he missed question 10 his grade would fall to a B. This kind of gotcha will bee liminated under the current b ill. The goal of the bill is to e nsur e that the level of performance associated with an A-F school is transpar e nt. State Rep.

Kay Dougherty Jagle Fer nandina Beach P P o o o o r r s s e e r r v v i i c c e e I am writing to you about the poor service that the citizens of Nassau County should get yet are not getting. A couple of years ago, I was reading the paper the county advertised do mor e with less. Ir onically that is not tr ue. The county has since hired mana gers which are not needed. The probl em is leadership especially in the road a nd bridge department. The field manager was hired, service was to get better. Wrong. It got worse. The construction supervisor. What ar e they? Those two make the commissioners look bad. The materi als that Road & Bridge is needed to fix r oads is not ther e but it will be or der ed t o cover their tracks and mistakes. S ave the county a lot of money comm issioners, get rid of the waste. Get rid of about 15 of those managers. You can buy some material to work with. The county plucked the low hanging fruit. Now it is time to shake the tree. Do more with less. Shake the top of the tree. The citizens want results not promises. Spring is in the air. Do some spring cleaning. Save the citizens some money. Nassau County has gone from good to bad with no end in sight. Clean house now. Get a fresh start. Plant new trees. The old ones do not bear good fruit. J ames White Callahan K K a a r r a a t t e e k k i i d d s s I would like to thank Masters Bryan and Car o lyn Peeples. Paks Karate has been a part of my family for 11 years now. The time we have spent being par t of this karate school has been a positive investment for my family Masters Bryan and Carolyn have t aught so much mor e than self-defense s kills, they have been consistent instr u ments in the core development of my children. Respect, gratitude and honor are some of the core values they help to implement. Self-discipline, focus and har d work skills ar e taught as well. My childr en have accomplished things they didnt believe themselves capable of thr ough karate. I am so happy t hat Br yan and Car olyn have shar ed in their successes and am less fearful of the obstacles yet to overcome knowing they will be there for us. I would also like to mention Master Craig Peeples and his devotion to T ang Soo Do that led him to open schools in our area. Grandmaster Song Ki Pak opened t he first Pak s Karate Academy in Jacksonville and has trained many great instructors. Among his best are Masters Craig, Bryan and Carolyn Peeples. My sincer est appr e ciation.

I turn the volume way up and get chills ever y time. Between the verse and the chor us wher e hes belting out from sea to shining sea, he says an aside of Oh, I wish I had somebody to hep me. The Rayettes chime in full s wing with America, A-mer-I-ca and I get all tear y-eyed. W e ll, a group of Fernandinians wish we had somebody to hep us reduce the use of plastic bags, which take centuries to biodegrade. The ocean wishes it, too. Dolphins are tangled and shor e birds are encapsulated. Turtles are dying from ingesting bags and suffocating not to mention the man whose boat propeller tangled with a plastic bag and cost $6,500 to remedy I ts so easy. Ask your retailer for a r eusable bag take them with you ever y where. You probably have a mess of them in your car When they get dirty, wash them. If your retailer doest have them, buy some yourself. Be conscious that you live on or near one of America s most beautiful islands. Our group, Bag the Bag Fernandina, is planning a community-wide contest for artwork for the reusable bag that will represent Fernandina Beach. The slogan on the r eusable bag w ill be Bag the Bag, Save the Ocean. W e are researching what reusable bag we will use, so stay tuned for fur t her infor m ation. The entries we r eceive will be displayed and voted on by the community at the W i ld Amelia Expo on May 17. The next meeting for Bag the Bag Fernandina is April 5 at 3 p.m., at Sheffields. If you want to come aboard, well see you there. Maggie Carlson Fer nandina Beach P A T BAGLEY/SAL T LAKE TRIBUNE Several people have called or dropped by urging me to get involved in the current controv ersy regarding the citys plan to remove trees at the golf course. As the co-author and sponsor o f the citys tree protection ordinance (Susan Laird and I wrote it together), I am concerned and interested, so I decided to dig a little deeper. Understand, my history with this issue makes me a little skeptical and cynical right out of the box. Several years ago I was told that the g reens were in bad shape and what they needed, what the whole course needed, was an irrig ation system. So, the city borrowed the money and installed an irrigation system. Then I was told that the trees needed to be trimmed. Trimmed is such an innocuous word; trimmed, as in take a little off no harm done. Subsequently, the trees I believe were trimmed. Now, in order to save the greens, and by association the course itself, those same trees need to be removed. I understand the problem, I really do: too much shade, fibrous root systems popping through the ground at inappropriate locations, those same root systems robbing the greens of necessary water and nutrients; the greens ultimately go away, golfers vanish along with the greens and city revenues vaporize along with the greens and the golfers. I understand the problem, I really do. I n my perfect-world scenario, though, heres what should happen: 1) the trees are left undisturbed, 2) azaleas and other Augusta Nationallike flowering plants and shrubs are planted among them, 3) the city touts and advertises its c ourse and as the most naturally beautiful publ ic golf course in the southeast, 4) golfers, in a ppreciation of the courses uniqueness, return in record numbers; city golf course coffers overflow. How l ikely is this? Well, I dont know. Is it possible? Yes. S usan Laird and I talked a long time about the goal of the tree ordinance and finally decided it should be no net loss of trees in the city. The city officials say they are going to plant more trees g ood, but whats happened to that net number since: The city cut down all those trees around the airport did they re-plant? The city and state agencies authorized the apparent clearcutting at the location of a new subdivision off of Sadler Road. Was a tree survey done as required by the tree protection ordinance? Did the city require them to protect any trees over a certain d iameter at breast height? The city says that state agencies have no problem with the development since no natural waterways or ecosystems are affected. Really? Are we going to take anything any state agency has to say about any environmental issue seriously? I dont. Note: I tried to verify the apparent clear-cutting by walking back to the site. I was discouraged, however, by a No Trespassing sign warning t hat any offenders could be punished by a million years in prison or something like that. My thoughts immediately drifted to Pete Seeger or Woody Guthrie singing, This Land is Your Land and the part about the other side of a No Trespassing sign; alas, the pleasure of an o ccasional mind-drift. I n the what will happen to the net number category we have to put Crane Island. The island was recently purchased, ostensibly for d evelopment, so how many trees will be left standing after the bulldozers leave and after the c oncrete and asphalt have been poured is anybodys guess. I know, Crane Island isnt in the city, but it will be after its been developed thats the development agreement the city commission approved 3-2 in the early 2000s. Mayor Kim Page and I were the two dissenters, and I dont k now about her, but I still cant let it go. Should I in the interest of inner peace and tranquility? Y es. Will I? Probably not. People come to this place for a lot of reasons, but I suspect that many come for the islands natural beauty. I hear much talk about the Greenway and its opportunities for peace, quiet, solitude and natural surroundings. Fort Clinch, too, is a favorite for many of the same reasons. Bottom line? People just like to be surrounded by nature people like trees. T he current tree protection ordinance was the second and stronger attempt to protect these valuable assets, it took over a year to pass and there was virtually no one in the commissions chamber to speak in support. The commission finally did pass it, though, and I suspect its become one of those things that will be very tough to rescind. I love the beginning of Robert Frosts poem, Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening, when he asks, Whose woods these are I think I know. His house is in the village though. Well, this is our village and these are our woods, lets care for them in ways that ensure t heyll be here for future generations, so they c an know them and care for them, too. Ron Sapp is a former city commissioner. Bottom line: People like trees F LORIDA S O LDEST W EEKLY N EWSPAPER E STABLISHEDIN 1 854 The News-Leader is published with pride weekly for the people of Nassau County by Community Newspapers, Inc., Athens, Georgia.

D EBATE A ND TACKLE Ron Sapp For the past 3 1/2 years I have advocated for and ser ved as the voice for our childr en and taxpayers in Nassau County and helped to drive decisions to reset the direction of our school system. The public education system must strike a balance between the inter ests of the students, teachers, administrators and taxpayers. It is my strong belief that this balance has been lost, unfor tunately at the expense of our students. Frankly, I have found it difficult to achieve the changes needed due to the entrenched interests of longtime board members, the unions and politics that unfortunately exist with any public office. Given this, I have been tor n as to my continued r ole to impr ove the educational system for our children. One of the best comments that I received as your School Boar d member was fr om a par ent at Yulee Elementary School. He told me that you ar e not a politician. He was right and I have done my best to take politics out of the decision process and instead focused on completing the important work of moving our educational system for war d to meet the needs of our students. The changes we need, the changes that our childr en deser ve, cannot be built upon politi cal maneuvering. The changes must be based on a r eal belief and value system that truly puts children first. It can no longer be solely based on the best interests of the adults and protecting their interests. I believe that taxpayers need a str ong voice on our School Board to ensure transparency and accountability; however it gr ows incr eas ingly dif ficult to watch the influence of special interests wear away at the foundation and quality of our schools and deny our children the very best. It is for this reason that I will not seek re-election to the School Board, although I am confident that I would be re-elected if I chose this path. This is not a decision that I came to easily but I know that this is the right deci sion for me and my family I am proud of the accomplishments that I made while ser ving my community. Our students have achieved the highest graduation rate in the state for the past two years and have had the lowest dropout rates in the state. I worked hard to increase parental choice options, implemented a teacher evaluation system that takes academic growth of students into account and increased the number of higher education and technical courses available to our students. I fought to get legislation passed that would r equire transparency for our taxpayers and have been a good steward of your tax dollars by being fiscally tough on budget decisions, lowering taxes and by opposing initiatives that ar e not beneficial to our students, such as the recommended medical health clinic that would have only served school employees and would have been a tr emendous and unnecessar y cost to taxpayers. I worked to build a str ong relationship with our business community and other elected officials to bring awareness of the important issues impacting our children and to prepare today s youth for the demands of tomor r ow s workforce. I have fought to ensure that our local and state policies wer e followed by all of our employees, as well as the boar d and super intendent. Unfortunately, our rules and policies seem to be negotiable based upon relationships that exist with the administration. I have always stood on principle, even though I have generally been alone in my stance. In each decision that I have made, I have weighed whether the broad interests of all taxpayers would be served well and if public consent should be granted. Although I have been accused of being outspoken and asking too many questions, I pr ofoundly believe that we can be better and we need to be for our childr en. The bullying issues that we find in our schools have their foundation in the attitudes and behavior of adults who are in positions of leadership throughout our school system. I have fought to have a strong voice for our students and taxpayers but have been repaid by personal attacks to my character values and family. Questioning how taxpayer money is spent, policies that ar e not dir ectly beneficial to our students and upholding constitutional obligations should be the norm. Sadly it is not and anyone who tries to do so is ostracized and viciously attacked. It seems Abraham Lincoln was correct when he said real leadership always risks unpopularity. The workplace is changing rapidly and I see it as our duty to prepare our children as best we can for the challenges that they will face when they graduate by providing the best curriculum for success in higher education or as a skilled workforce. Improving academic achievement will continue to be a battle for our educational system. The educational system is changing rapidly and our students will suf fer if the cur r ent system is not reformed to allow the necessary changes to prevail in our cur riculum. A top-down educational system that focuses on what is best for the adults will deny students the oppor tunities they need and stifle innovation in the classr oom. Until this system changes, no real reform to the educational opportunities available for our students can occur I have tried my best to break the status quo but have realized that this is impossible. To attract and maintain good leaders who have children in our schools is difficult because the system believes that the par ents ar e the problem, not the schools. It is clear that the administration is focused on maintaining the idea that the educational system should be primarily focused on benefiting the adults who ar e in these positions, not the students who walk through our doors each day. My decision to not r etur n to the School Board has been one of the most difficult decisions that I have ever made. I know in my heart that our children deserve more but I have realized that the board, superintendent and unions will not allow it. My role on the Boar d has never been about politics, my sole focus has been to serve as a voice for our students and taxpayers. I have and will always advocate for what is right. I believe that there is a huge battle ahead and whoever assumes this seat needs to be able to hold the administration, superintendent, other board members and union to a higher standard. I wish that I could continue to be that person but the time has come for me to focus on my family friends and a job that allows me to interact in the global ar ena. Thank you for allowing me to serve as your voice for our children. It is an experience that I will never forget as I strive to continue to make a difference in our community.

But always, Im interested in watching nature. On days like these, when there is nothing else on my agenda, I often take a drive. Our world here is full of wildlife no matter which way Ic hoose, but if time permits my favorite route is south on A1A off t he island and down Heckscher Drive to points beyond. Before I moved here I used to call this the greatest drive on Earth and I still feel that way every time I leave Amelia Island heading south. Egrets and herons are common sights, usually feeding singly i n the marshes along much of the route. Even though I see them o ften they still enchant me with their still grace and now, in spring, their fluffy feathery plumes. But on this drive egrets and their relatives are just a start. Driving across the south end bridge the open expanse of N assau Sound fills the view. If the tide is low the sandy masses of t he Bird Islands rise above the waters surface, a feeding and breeding ground for variouss horebirds that cherish privacy a nd lack of human interference. Its too far away to see these birds from the highway, but just knowing they are there warms myh eart. S ometimes as the warm w eather progresses there are r oseate spoonbills in Spoonbill P ond just across the bridge on t he left. Now, though, the drainage of the pond seems to have been impacted by the construction of the bike trail boardwalk along its edge or some other disturbance. Whatever the causei t never seems to be low water in the pond these d ays, no matter what the tides. S adly Im wondering if spoonbills will be here this year again, but guess Ill have to wait and see. F urther along the road p asses through the maritime forest of Big and Little Talbot Islands State Parks, still a calming expanse of house-less, building-less road with only nature, and now the new bike trail that skirts it. This t rail has two parking lot accesses and on weekends it attracts its o wn group of nature-lovers who enjoy it from the seat of a bicycle. I just drive on by. At the south end of Little Talbot Island the state parking lot for fishermen encloses two different retention ponds. Although b oth seem similar to me, with carefully manicured banks and v egetation free waters, the birds in both are always different from one another. Often one pond hasF lorida ducks and maybe a lone e gret. The other might have a pair of feeding Louisiana herons and a group of mergansers and maybe a great blue heron. Onep ond might have swooping gulls a nd terns catching drinks of fresh w ater on the fly while they shun t he other pond and sometimes v ice versa. Why they segregate l ike this is a mystery to me, but its always a fun place to stop and admire whatever birds are there. Further along there are the salt marshes of the Timucuan Reserve, the sights of the St.J ohns River, the collections of businesses, fish camps and h omes from modest to Mcmansions, its all there for the v iewing. Now in March there is also an osprey pair building a nest right on top of the traffic signal lights for the Sisters Creek Bridge. Jenny Alvarado has been documenting the osprey nesting on this bridge for two years nowa nd has been instrumental along with BEAKS in ensuring that this n est is left in place. There are some side trips possible along Heckscher Drive too, a five-mile loop out to the Kingsley Plantation and another side road further south that leads to the Joe Carlucci Boat Ramp. Both short diversions afford great natural views, more egrets a nd herons, Old Florida type scenery, history and who knows w hat else, its always different. To be a good road trip in my book however there also has to be food. If you drive along Heckscher Drive youve got some mighty fine options. If you want a seafood restaurant overlooking t he St. Johns River and the ferry, try the Sand Dollar. If you want O ld Florida style fish stew and more try Chowder Teds somewhat further down the road ando nly open for lunch. And then, t here is my favorite. Im a fried chicken junky and you cant do better than the fried chicken, chicken livers and pork chopsd oled out from the little kitchen i nside the Kangaroo Gas Station j ust before Blount Island. Y es, on a lazy day road trip Im n ot burning calories but consumi ng them. And, once in a while theres nothing wrong with that! Pat Foster-Turley is a zoologist on Amelia Island.

MARY MAGUIRE News-Leader How many technicians does i t take to screw in a light bulb? At the Nassau County Judicial Annex in Yulee the answer is three, and Nassau County officials say its not enough manpower. eve got 2,000 lights out t here, including 89 in the parking lot, said Facilities Mainten-a nce Director Bob Knott. Its a constant effort, and our techs have a lot of other work to get done on top of that. The county is planning to spend $60,000 on a new lighting system that will use low w attage bulbs and a computer control system that can spott rouble remotely without having to put workers on a lift to see whats wrong. Thats a big money saver in electricity and manpower, said Knott. In a conference call T hursday afternoon with department supervisor BillH oward, Knott said the new lighting system is part of a larger plan to make almost $300,000 in upgrades and r epairs at the courthouse. T he lighting system also has the capability to tie into new facilities planned around the judicial complex, including the Emergency Operations Center (EOCf administration building. Please let taxpayers know that the money were spendi ng will save money today and into the future, said Knott. In addition to the new parking lot lights, the plan includes a new interior lighting system ($25,000 tem ($20,000 to $25,000 change in backflow components for the buildings fire syst em ($25,000 ing, including carpet and tile, for third-floor courtrooms, judges chambers and hallways ($160,000 Chief Judge Robert Foster has signed off on the plan. The county commission is expected to sign off on the upgrades and repairs. Officials say work could start as early as next month. Knott and Howard offered details on the other projects. New locking system. The new system creates a master key plan and controls access by department, including judicial, clerk of court, state attorn ey, public defender and maintenance. Facilities maintenance will handle installation; the system plan and design is being handled by Stanley Securities based in Jacksonville. Were planning a walk-through soon and surveying each department for r equirements and staff access, said Howard. LED lighting for main corridors and restrooms. Were changing to bulbs that last 5,000 hours and thats a lot more efficient than the ones we use now that go for 500 to 1000 hours, said Knott. He said the new bulbs cost the same and the lights are going on timers. Replace backflow for the water supply for the courthouse fire system. It contains antifreeze and thats no longer u p to code. Replace carpet and tile on t hird floor courtrooms, jury rooms, judges chambers and h allways. The carpet is severely deteriorating because of heavy wear and tear, said Howard. Were putting in carpet tiles where we can so we have the ability to take select pieces out in the future as neede d. The project needs to go out for bid, and work is expect-e d to start in July. The money for these courth ouse improvements is collected through court fees, including a $15 surcharge that is added to non-criminal traffic tickets and certain criminal c ases. In 2013, the county collecte d $82,652 in this surcharge fee, and more than $80,000 of t his total came from traffic citations. The courthouse improvement fund and courthouse facilities fund held $859,734 as of Monday morning, according to the countys budget office.

M M o o o o n n s s h h i i n n e e b b u u s s t t A Yulee man was arrested March 6 by Nassau County deputies after they uncovered a moonshine still in his garage in a joint investigation with special agents from the U.S. Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, according to a report. Deputies and special agents arrived the afternoon of March 6 at the residence of Bradley Scott Mizeras, 44, 86099 Meadowwood Drive, Yulee, after an investigation revealed a possible moonshine still on the p roperty. On arrival, officers saw Mizeras leave the house and enter the garage, which had its doors open, according to the report. Several agents were given permission by Mizeras to e nter the garage. Mizeras told officers he had o rdered a moonshine kettle, and at that point he was advised of his rights, the report stated, and invoked his right to an attorney. While in the garage, agents and officers saw a large copper vapor tower attached to the kettle, and a plastic cooling tube o n the wall. Numerous wine bottles with a clear liquid inside were also in the area, as well as empty wine bottles and corks. The clear liquid had a strong odor of alcohol consistent with moonshine, according to the report. The items were taken as evid ence and Mizeras was placed under arrest for possession of a moonshine still or any apparatus of a moonshine still, and possession of more than a gallon of moonshine whiskey. D D r r i i v v e e r r f f l l e e e e s s Deputies arrested a Georgia man March 4 for DUI after using road spikes to stop his v ehicle and a stun gun to subdue him, according to a report. A deputy on patrol reported that he began following a Chevrolet S-10 with Georgia plates in the early morning hours of March 4 after he o bserved it driving erratically going west on A1A. T he deputy activated his lights to get the truck to pull over, and also observed the driver was leaning over to the right far enough that his head was in the center of the truck. The driver was speeding up and then slowing down, swerving and drifting from the grass s houlder across the outside lane and into the inside lane, almost striking other vehicles ... and braking erratically, the report stated. Another deputy set up spike strips near the intersection of Pages Dairy Road in Yulee, but the driver kept going even t hough his tires were struck, according to the report. A second set of spike strips was set up at A1A and Bobby Moore Circle, causing the trucks right front tire to deflate, but the driver continued to approach the intersection of I-95 at 70 mph, according to the report. The truck was finally forced to stop for traffic backed up at a r ed light, according to the report. Officers approached the driver with a drawn stun gun and firearm, opening the drivers door and ordering him to exit the vehicle. The driver, later identified a s Samuael Leon Todd, 40, of Folkston, Ga., refused an order t o lie on the ground, so the stun was used on him, according to the report. An open can of alcohol in the cup holder was reportedly still cold to the touch. Todds speech was slurred and he appeared to be impaired, according to the report. Fire Rescue was called due to the s tun gun deployment and Todds incoherent condition. A check of Todds blood sugar level revealed it was normal, but he became unresponsive and was transported to Baptist Medical Center Nassau, where he remained unresponsive to questioning, according to t he report. Todd was found to have suspended driver licenses in both Florida and Georgia. He was arrested for fleeing and eluding police with lights and siren activated, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving while license suspended or revoked with knowledge and resisting arrest without violence.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK OUTDOORS/ TIDES WEDNESDAY, MARCH19, 2014NEWS-LEADER/ FERNANDINABEACH, FL ORIDACarters paradise fishing worldWaking up with the sun creeping over a jungle below was unusual for a Vermont-born fisherman. A troop of howler monkeys growled like apes from their high perch in a variety of jungle trees, including highly-sought teak trees. Jack Healan and Wilson T ennille were already dressed and enjoying coffee on the back patio of our condo as I continued to snap photos of tropical plants and the Pacific Ocean far below. "Please wake me up," I said to Jack and Wilson. "I am very confused; did I just win the Lotto or is this all just a dream?" Gary and Sherrel Carter, longtime Amelia Island past r esidents and friends, had invited us to stay for a few days at their Costa Rica development. In 2001, the Carters moored their sport fishing boat, "Silver-Rod-O," at Carrillo Bay and soon discovered their dream property. "The temperature stays from 80-90 degrees, there are no tropical storms, seas typically run from 2-3 feet and from December through April it does not rain," Gary Carter said. "In the 12 years that we have been here, I have had to cancel my fishing trips only three times." Shortly after enjoying a breakfast of fresh fruit, coffee and eggs, we boarded Carter's custom-built 45-foot G&S sport fishing boat and were heading out into the Pacific Ocean for a day of billfishing. Costa Rican Yoan Algala skippered Carter's sport fishing boat from the fly bridge while two mates, Efren Carillo and Carlos Vasques, r eadied fishing gear and baits at the back deck for a full day of billfishing. Some 20 miles offshore with a water depth of 4,000 feet, Yoan brought the "SilverRod-O" off plane and began trolling at eight knots. Four Mold Craft teaser lures were set two at 40 feet and two at 65 feet. "We will be fishing with fourto 12-pound class tackle today," Gary Carter said. "Our Shimano Ty r nos 30 II r eel drags are set at 60 percent of the line test, so we shouldn't have to worry about billfish breaking the line." "Gary, sail, sail, left teaser," Yoan soon shouted from the fly bridge. Gary Carter quickly pitched a rigged ballyhoo back into the boat's wake feeding line until it reached the sail's kill zone. Meanwhile Efren reeled in the teaser close to the boat, where Carter's rigged ballyhoo was now swimming perfectly in front of the sail. Seconds later an 85-pound Pacific sailfish billed the bait while Carter free lined the foraging sailfish, making sure the 7/0 Eagle Claw circle hook was deep enough for a good hook set. Seconds later Healan was fighting his first sailfish on 12pound tackle while Yoan backed down the 45-foot "Silver-Rod-O" at full throttle. W ith saltwater gushing over the back transom and Healan's sailfish wildly thrashing its bill, it was big game fishing at its best. T en minutes into the fight, Efren leadered the tired sailfish just off the transom and re leased Healan's estimated 85-pound Pacific sailfish. Later that afternoon we came across a floating raft, where mahi mahi, tuna and wahoo were stacked up under the raft. Trolling minnow-type plugs resulted in several hook-ups from all the species and a fish box full of excellent eating. During our final day, Gary Carter broke out the fourpound class tackle and showed us the 10 IGFA world OUTDOORSTerry Lacoss Located on the northwestern coast of Costa Rica, Las Ventanas Del Mar sits 900 feet above sea level, offering luxury home and condo living, above. And big game fishing in the Pacific Ocean is close at hand. Former Amelia Island residents Gary and Sherrell Carter developed the property while setting 14 IGA world records. Left, Amelia Island's Wilson Tennille plays a 70-pound Pacific sailfish on four-pound line; the sail was eventually leadered and released.PHOTOS BY TERRY LACOSS/SPECIALJack Healan is pictured fighting a Pacific sailfish on 12-pound line while Gary Carter, center, videos Healan's sail. Also pict ured is Costa Rican Efren Carillo, leadering the estimated 85-pound sailfish. Gary Carter, left, and Costa Rican Efren Carillo are pictured with a nice wahoo Jack Healan caught from under a floating raft. r ecords he owns. Feeding a 60-pound sail with a barbed ballyhoo, Carter was soon hooked up and, within 15 minutes, Efren had leadered and r eleased his sail. Minutes later Wilson Tennille also played and released a similar size sail on fourpound line. Included in Carter's 10 IGFA line class world records are a 58.2-pound mahi mahi caught with two-pound line and a 357-pound Atlantic Blue Marlin caught with six-pound line. Sherrell Carter holds four records, including a 533pound Atlantic blue marlin caught with 16-pound line. After three days of billfishing, we had hooked and r eleased several Pacific sailfish, enjoyed eating at many of the nearby oceanfront r estaurants and, more importantly, I finally was able to experience longtime friends Gary and Sherrell Carter's "Las Ventanas del Mar," the window to the sea and doorway to paradise. Amazingly during our stay, Karen Weaver of New York landed and released an extremely rare, 350-pound albino blue marlin while fishing aboard the "Spanish Fly," captained by Juan Carlos Zamora. Our flight originated in Jacksonville, then to Miami, where we flew into Liberia, Costa Rica. A two-hour taxi cab ride from Liberia to Carrillo soon found our threesome of Amelia Island fishermen sitting perfectly in paradise found.

You would think a sunf illed Saturday, in which 17 home runs were recorded, would be enough excitement b ut nothing compared to the game of the week and what m ay possibly be the Family Driven Softball Leagues g ame of the year.

T he stage was set with Coach David Keays Big Red Machine holding an 18-14 lead going into the final inning. Veteran Roger Smith began the final inning with a single, followed by a walk by M ason Buchman. Wendy B owman moved the r unners w ith a sacrifice, followed by a two-run blast from Coach Scott Schol. Thr e e mor e r uns wer e added as T o m W e ller, Shad Goltz and hittingmachine Phil Hawkins all scored, making the score 21-1 8 in favor of Big Blue.

The 14U team played very well with wins over the Clay Knights (48-10 ville Lady Elite (46-17 The local team faced the Lady Hawks in the semifinals. The game started out slow for the BCF girls as they fell down early In the thir d quar ter, they found themselves at a 13-point deficit. After a quick timeout, the girls put on a defensive clinic, which put them in front 36-35 when Montana Walker was fouled on a three-pointer and made all three free-throws. The game went back and forth the rest of the way as the BCF girls fell shor t, losing 48-46 and a trip to the championship game. I feel we had a great shot to win the whole tour nament. I believe we had the better team but made a couple of errors at key times in the game that cost us the victory. The team that beat us lost by four in the championship game, so I know our talent level is ther e. This is our first tournament of the year, so I think we ar e going to do ver y well this AAU season, Coach Jacob Nantz said. Leading the scoring for BCF in the semifinals were Lexi Schulz with 17 points, Erica Foote with eight points and 16 r ebounds and Anna Arato with 11 points and nine rebounds. The BCF girls play again next weekend in Jacksonville before heading to play in a tournament at the ESPNW ide W orld of Spor ts Center in Orlando next month, followed by a national qualifying tournament in Savannah, Ga.

The historic Mt. Hope home has not always been located where it h appily lives today. It was actually moved in 2005. An i sland couple was faced with a dilemma when a developer w ho bought the highly valued property where the home originally lived planned to demolish the house. The Georgian-style farmhouse sat on property once known as the Mt. Hope Plantation and was one of three plantations that made up A melia Island at one time. It had been lovingly restored. N o problem, just move the house, right? And so they did and with great enthusiasm. No challenge was unmet and there were some interesting ones. Their decision to save the house and move it has preserved an important parto f Amelia Islands plantationera history. Y es, the house would be m oved, but where? The c ost of moving a house is determ ined by the number o f miles it has to travel a nd the amount of disruption, so one important consideration was the distance involved. If t raffic lights are involved it costs $20,000 per light. At one p oint there was discussion of floating the house to another site on Ft. George Island. The couple found the perfect lot not far from the homes original location. The lot had beautiful, stately live oaks and the marsh view thatt he couple treasures. Interestingly, they found the l ot had to be rezoned. It was at o ne time the home of a seafood restaurant and zoned c ommercial. So in a reversal of the traditional rezoning requests the lot is now zoned r esidential. On a hot August day everyt hing was in place for the La Rue Moving Company from G reen Cove Springs to carefully move the four pieces of the home to a lot just down the road and near its original site. The entire move was coordinated with local police, utility companies, movers, construction workers and a licensed arborist. As each p iece of the house moved slowly down the road, the a rborist sitting on the roof of the house carefully monitored the trees along the way and trimmed only those that had to be trimmed. The entire move took about three hours. Rob McCloskey of M.W. Master Builders in OrangeP ark has nothing but admiration for the La Rue crew that m oved the house. McCloskey has been involved in other hist oric home moves and restorations and oversaw the installation of the house. The house has been restored to its 1862 state has h ad many parties and celebrat ions including the marriage o f the couples son and fundraisers that have benefited the Amelia Island community. A few of the projects and g roups that have benefited include Trinity Church, the Amelia Arts Academy and Amelia Island Museum of History as well as many othe rs. T he original plantation b elonged to John Daniel Vaughan, a veteran of the Revolutionary War who fought at Valley Forge. The first house was built in 1797 and burned in 1862 and was rebuilt on the original site. T he plantation had 250 acres of indigo and grew sea island c otton. The house has had only three owners. The Vaughan family owned it for 150 years. It was then sold to the Lohmans and to its current owners. The house is currently for sale. Lots of people move and h ate to leave their house, this couple simply took theirs with them!

CATS ANGELS Fancy is a very happy, good-natured young lady who is accustomed to living with people, but unfortunately her owners couldn t keep her any more. Shes a Retriever/ Chow Chow mix, about a year old. She only weighs about 40 pounds and is fully gr own, so shes a fine size for a house dog. She has a lovely black coat that glistens in the sun, soulful brown eyes and a wonderful smile. She walks well on her leash, and we believe shes housetrained. Shes very friendly and affectionate, and loves to be petted! She s also very smart, and her ears will tell you when shes on aler t. She alr eady knows how to sit, and accepts treats gently. Shes heartworm-negative and already spayed, and ready to start loving you today! Please bring your family and other pets over for a meet-and-greet with lovable, happy Fancy! Kita is a tr ue r escue cat, and now shes ready for a forever home with you! Shes a Domestic Shorthair mix, about a year and a half old, and shes small and fully gr own. She s a tuxedo cat with a gorgeous, soft coat. Y oull love her sweet gr een eyes and the cute little white socks on her paws! She was found downtown fending for herself, around the old railroad depot. With medicine, food and TLC she has tur ned into quite the beautiful cat, and she s been doing very well becoming socialized with the other cats in our cattery. We think she would probably do best in a household with no cats or only one other cat. You can give Kita a new life, and shell love you for ever for it!
